Powerhouse North London duo Gorgon City have announced the supporting artists for the Los Angeles stop of their acclaimed REALM show. When the UK dance innovators take the stage on July 8 at the iconic Shrine LA (Outdoors), they’ll be joined by a technicolor array of talent: Walker & Royce, Nala, and Matt Black. The news follows the pair’s massive, sold-out REALM gig this month at the Brooklyn Mirage.

REALM Los Angeles will treat fans to sets from some of the scene’s best established and rising talent. Duo Walker & Royce have released their funky and off-kilter tech house for the likes of Dirtybird, Crosstown Rebels, Relief Records, and their own Rules Don’t Apply label; while Nala has been hailed as an up-and-comer to watch with her incendiary takes on house music, indie dance, breaks, and beyond for Dirtybird and Pets Recordings. Hometown hero Matt Black has been holding the city down for over a decade with his genre-hopping DJ sets.
REALM Los Angeles continues Gorgon City’s international victory lap following the release of their third album, Olympia, last year on Astralwerks. Preceded by 2020’s kinetic REALM EP, the LP featured collaborations with fellow travelers ranging from electronic pop act Sofi Tukker to dance R&B duo DRAMA and quickly became the No.1 dance album on the UK Official Charts, Apple Music, and Beatport. To date, it boasts over 250 million total streams and counting.
So far in 2022, Gorgon City have brought their UK-rooted club sound to SoCal’s CRSSD Festival, Miami Music Week, Austria’s Snowbombing, and Movement Detroit. In addition to REALM Los Angeles, Gorgon City will be hosting a weekly Ibiza residency at legendary club Amnesia this summer between jet-setting festival stops at Annie Mac’s Lost & Found in Malta, the UK’s Parklife and Glastonbury, ARC Music Festival in Chicago, and San Francisco’s Portola.
